During the first two weeks of October, Troop D Patrol Troopers investigated four nighttime commercial burglaries in the Thompson/Putnam area and arrested a Putnam man March 23.
Sean Holmes, 33, of Thurber Road, Putnam, turned himself into Quality of Life Task Force Troopers on the strength of the four arrest warrants.  He was charged with fourth-degree larceny, first-degree criminal mischief, second-degree criminal trespass, three counts of third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief, fifth-degree larceny, two counts of sixth-degree larceny and second-degree criminal mischief.
Oct. 5: Harvest Moon, Liberty Highway, Putnam.
Oct. 6: Marika’s Restaurant, Rt. 44.
Oct. 10: Quaddick Country Store, Quaddick Town Farm Road, Thompson.
Oct. 13: Big Gary’s Discount Liquors, Rt. 44.
Nov. 21 Troop D QLTF troopers began looking into the above listed burglaries.  Due to the violent forced entries into the business’s and the late night hours of the crimes, QLTF troopers suspected that these burglaries were fueled by an individual addicted to drugs. 
QLTF troopers are very familiar with the geographic layout of the area where the burglaries occurred and are familiar with known drug houses located within walking distance of all four burglaries.
They developed a suspect and interviewed him in Hartford. He confessed to all four burglaries.
Members of the Connecticut State Police are committed to combating drug activity in the “Quiet Corner” and anyone with information regarding the illegal sale of narcotics are encouraged to call the Troop D QLTF anonymous Tips Hotline at 860-779-4950 or message the QLTF Facebook page.
